Phillip Jordan Ellis "Jordie" Benn (born July 26, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for the Dallas Stars in the National Hockey League. He is the older brother of Dallas Stars forward and captain Jamie Benn.[1][2]

On January 3, 2012, Benn made his NHL debut against the Detroit Red Wings, playing alongside his younger brother Jamie. Both Benn brothers assisted on a goal by Loui Eriksson, which was the first career NHL point for Benn.[3]

As an impending free agent following the 2015–16 season, Benn opted to remain with the Stars, signing a three-year, $3.3 million contract on June 24, 2016.[4]
